Mark Spencer: Murder Most Florid (2019, Quadrille Publishing, Limited) 3 stars


3 stars

The author clearly knows a lot about plants and that aspect of the book I really enjoyed reading. However, the contents of each chapter didn't always link to the central theme of the chapter. The book's flow felt forced and there were two editorial mistakes where chunks of text where completely missing. Moreover, the author doesn't seem to contribute much to forensic cases with most cases resulting in not being able to find evidence or evidence that the author suggested being ignored.
